VSF Russian Vehicle Names
« on: February 22, 2007, 10:30:03 PM »
I'm putting together a small force of VSF Russians to fight my Japanese, British and Chinese in setting similar to Back of Beyond - but based around 1900  instead of 1920's.

I want to put name plates on some of my vehicles, but don't know any Russian. Can any of you help me with what I should paint for the Russian equivalents of the following names:

Albatross
Centaur
Giant (Gigant)
Peter the Great

Also some ideas of simple slogans (in the style of WW2 Soviet tank art) to paint on Ironclad Miniatured tanks - but preferably something more appropriate to Imperial Russians rather than Soviet Communists!

Here is the cyrillic alphabet

http://www.friends-partners.org/oldfriends/language/russian-alphabet.html

and this is what you need, type in the english anf you will get the ruski (fingers crossed)   :)

http://www.rustran.com/

Albatross = АЛЬБАТРОС

Centaur = КЕНТАВР;  СОЗВЕЗДИЕ КЕНТАВРА

Giant = ВЕЛИКАН;  ГИГАНТ;  ИСПОЛИН;  ТИТАН;  ГИДРОМОНИТОР

Peter the Great = Петр Великий

check these out for yourself though incase I did it wrong :?

As for pre Soviet slogans yo will have to look hard! probably after 1812 and agi in the Crimea or 1905 in the Russo Ja[panese wars but I bet they are very patriotic and royalist and not a little racist especially when talking of the japanese

Thanks for that guys. Now all I have to do is finish converting my tank and paint everything up.

I will post pics of them on my Displaced Miniatures pages as I finish them. First to be finished will probably be my Russian hero/general mounted on the Centaur (a Faberge clockwork horse...).

I think "Hydromonitor" is an excellent name for a fighting vehicle. :D
